I HEAR MY REAR BRAKE SPRINGS SCRETCHING WHEN I RELEASE BREAKS AND TRUCK IS IN DRIVE AND IT STAYS STILL. PLEASE HELP THANKS!

DRAGGING BRAKES

May create a steering pull and/or increased fuel consumption. Caused by weak or broken retracting springs on drum brakes, a jammed or corroded caliper piston, a floating caliper with badly corroded mounting pins or bushings (uneven pad wear between the inner and outer pads is a clue here), overextended drum brake self-adjusters or a sticky or frozen emergency brake cable.
